members.”

The Wheatland County Agricultural Service Board presents the Environmental
Stewardship Award as a way to recognize and reward notable efforts within the

“One of the things that I see other

is allowing for great negotiation with-

Peterson.
Although town administration is
aware the risk cannot be eliminated
completely, they remain optimistic the
policy will provide assurance to devel-
opers in providing fair and matching
service without additional changes
throughout the process.
“Staff certainly agrees that risk
can’t be removed from the develop-
ment process. What we’re looking to
do is remove from the perception of
risk that staff will change the rules
halfway through the game,” said Roy-
croft. “Developers, of course, take on
risk, market risk, construction risk,
even political risk. With regards to
council approval, the former risk that
was really raised during that develop-
ment services review and what came
up again and again was this concern
that goalposts were shifting part way
through processes and that’s the sort
of risk that staff really want to remove
by publicizing our process.”
Councillor Bob Sobol, who shared
Roycroft’s excitement, was also con-
cerned about current ongoing devel-
opment and the impact of the chang-
es. Administration assured council
that provincial government protection
would be extended to the developer in
such cases.
Council voted unanimously to ac-
cept the policy as information, and to
redact information in the policy per-
taining to a shift of power to the CAO
from council in regards to templates.
Furthermore, council passed another
motion to adopt Development Permit
